April 2010, Vol. 48, No. 4

The authors explore the architectural and protocol aspects that enable third-party IMS application development and deployment. They also study how the applications will coexist with other applications already deployed in the IMS. They describe Java libraries exploiting the functionality of the IMS both in the terminal client and within the core network. SALVATORE LORETO, TOMAS MECKLIN, MILJENKO OPSENICA, AND HEIDI-MARIA RISSANEN

PROTOCOL ADAPTATION IN THE NGN ENVIRONMENT The authors present a practical deployment of a contextual service offered by a convergent telecommunications operator, whose functionality is to provide intelligent context-based call routing and rerouting, orchestrated from the operator’s service layer. It is based on IMS control layer capabilities to properly capture the situation of the end user in a ubiquitous coverage area. ALEJANDRO CADENAS, ANTONIO SANCHEZ-ESGUEVILLAS, AND BELÉN CARRO

THE INTEGRATION OF THE IP MULTIMEDIA SUBSYSTEM AND WIRELESS SENSOR NETWORKS The authors have previously proposed a presence-based architecture for WSN/IMS integration. This architecture relies on two key components: a WSN/IMS gateway acting as an interworking unit between WSNs and the IMS; and an extended presence server serving as a context information management node in the core network. In this article the authors focus on the design and implementation of these two components. MAY EL BARACHI, ARIF KADIWAL, ROCH GLITHO, FERHAT KHENDEK, RACHIDA DSSOULI

The author provides an analysis of broadband Internet diffusion in 27 countries of the European Union. The author also proposes a simple model of its growth and identifies the theoretical growth limits in each country. Some aspects of the European i2010 project implementation are presented, discussed, and compared with the model. RYSZARD STRUZAK

LESSONS LEARNED AND APPLICATIONS Next-generation networks offer new opportunities and challenges to Internet service providers as well as providers of other online services. Service providers can now deploy new services over an IP network infrastructure without building their own networks. In an open network environment, the network resources of ISPs should be fairly open to third parties that plan to launch their own services. To respond to the changing network paradigm, it is essential to measure the traffic of individual services, and to estimate their cost for cost accounting between service provider and ISP. However, current traffic measurement techniques only provide total traffic volume in links, without reporting the operator whose services flow through the links.
